Overview

Around 1900 people across West Sussex currently receive care and support at home, which is purchased for them by West Sussex County Council. 

Residents are being asked to have their say on proposed changes to Care and Support at Home for people with and eligible social care need. West Sussex County Council’s contract arrangements for purchasing Care and Support at Home come to an end in January 2021 and residents are encouraged to share their views on the proposed new arrangements.

Focusing on people’s strengths and support networks and on the outcomes and goals they want to achieve are some of the priorities set out in the new proposals. They also aim to improve council systems and reflect a more local approach to purchasing services.
